No good news for UK family

THE Townsends have still had no joy in having their items returned to them.

The family of five, which has just emigrated to Coffs Harbour from the United Kingdom, were robbed in their Park Beach unit last week.

They lost personal possessions they really can't do without if they are to successfully settle here.

The Coffs Coast Advocate has been covering their story in the hope residents may have seen suspicious activity in or around Aqua Villa Holiday Apartments on Park Beach Road overnight on September 4.

Members of the community and businesses owners have also rallied around the family.

Nick Townsend is pleading with Park Beach residents to scour their yards, their fencelines, even in their bins for possessions which may have been dumped by the thieves.

"We're asking people to look in places they wouldn't normally think of looking," Nick said.

He's even asked the operators of Coffs Harbour's waste management facility to be on the lookout.

Nick is also offering a $500 reward for the return (in good condition) of the passports, birth certificates and other essential documents which were stolen.

Contact Nick on 0423 138 476.
